Firm Completes Natural Resource Assessment For Residential Development In Overland Park, Kansas

January 7, 2013

Terra Technologies successfully completed a Natural Resource Assessment of 43-acres of stream buffer and prairie habitat in Overland Park, Kansas.


Mills Farm by Matt Adam is a large residential subdivision surrounded by forest and natural grassland. Scientists with the firm performed the Natural Resource Assessment to determine if the property would qualify as a relatively natural form of terrestrial or aquatic habitat as defined in Internal Revenue Service Section 170. In order to determine the natural resource value of the property, scientists studied the physiographic region, soils, hydrology, and biotic community of the property.


The underlying soils and physiographic region were studied to determine how fundamental climatic and ecological processes shaped the soils and historic biotic communities. From this, it was determined that the property could support significant and stable animal and plant habitats. In order to assess the quality of the plant community, a field inspection was performed to develop a Floristic Quality metric for the observed plant species. This analysis confirmed the presence of a valuable native terrestrial community capable of supporting a diverse animal community.


The owner has granted a conservation easement to the Midwest Mitigation Oversight Association Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit company who assists owners in the preservation and enhancement of such habitat.
